Contact Tom Tancredo (R-Co), Chirman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus
Contact Congressman Tancredo ^ | 1.7.04 | Remember_Salamis

Posted on 01/07/2004 8:18:04 PM PST by Remember_Salamis

Contact Tom Tancredo (R-Co), Chirman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus (HIRC). He's one of the few elected republicans with his head on straight. Here's their platform:

Rep. Tom Tancredo’s Four-Point Plan for Immigration Control

The United States has lost control over its immigration policy. Over one million persons enter our nation illegally each year and we have antiquated and error-prone systems for knowing who our legal visitors are and for enforcing their visa time limits. Every poll shows that over 75% of citizens support border security and strict enforcement of our immigration laws. They want our immigration policies fixed. Here is my four-point plan for achieving control of our borders and enforcing sensible immigration policies.

1. Secure our Nation’s Borders

Increase Border Patrol manpower from the present 11,500 to 20,000 (HR 3534). Use the U.S. Military until the Border Patrol reaches that manpower level (HR 277). Accelerate the use of new technology and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to identify and help apprehend smugglers and trespassers. Double the capacity of the detention centers for apprehended trespassers. End the “catch and release” policy by instituting fines and jail time for repeat offenders. Require stiff prison sentences for convicted “coyotes” and felons who return to the U.S. after deportation. Accelerate the implementation of the “USVISIT” biometric identifier program for all foreign nationals entering the country through our ports of entry. 2. Establish a Genuine Guest Worker Program

Enact a genuine Guest Worker Bill (HR 3534) to allow any foreign national to enter the US legally to work for up to one year in a job that cannot be filled by a citizen. Require employers to advertise all jobs on an internet bulletin board and for two weeks before hiring a Guest Worker. Require illegal aliens already in the U.S. to first return home and apply for jobs through the legal processes. 3. Improve “Interior Enforcement” of Immigration Laws

Provide adequate resources to the “Detention and Removal” branch of the Bureau of Customs and Immigration Enforcement (BICE) to allow apprehension and removal of all criminal aliens. Enact the “CLEAR” Act (HR 2671) to give local law enforcement incentives and reimbursements for participating in immigration law enforcement. Establish stiff fines and tax penalties for employers who violate the law by hiring illegal aliens, and devote adequate resources to identify and prosecute those employers. 4. Remove Incentives for Illegal Immigration

Employers who hire illegal aliens should face stiff fines and tax penalties (see#2 above). Federal and State agencies should be prohibited from recognizing the Mexican Government’s “Matricula Consular” ID card. States that grant driver’s licenses to illegal aliens should suffer loss of federal highway funds. Children born to illegal aliens should not be given citizenship status (HR 1567). Federal court rulings and other policies that require health and educational services to illegal aliens should be overturned. Amend Social Security Act to deny credits for wages earned in illegal employment or to self-employed engaged in illegal activities (HR 1631). Insist that the Government of Mexico extradite felony criminals who retreat into Mexico. Encourage the Government of Mexico to repeal its Dual Citizenship law.

Here's the other members of the caucus. What's funny is that there' only two democrats in the caucus and one of them's becoming a republican (Hall from Tx): Todd Akin (R-MO) Robert Aderholt (R-AL) Spencer Bachus (R-AL) J. Gresham Barrett (R-SC) Richard Baker (R-LA) Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) Joe Barton (R-TX) Michael Bilirakis (R-FL) John Boozman (R-AR) Allen Boyd (D-FL) Henry Brown (R-SC) Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL) Michael Burgess (R-TX) Dan Burton (R-IN) Eric Cantor (R-VA) John Carter (R-TX) Mac Collins (R-GA) Barbara Cubin (R-WY) John Culberson (R-TX) JoAnn Davis (R-VA) Nathan Deal (R-GA) John Doolittle (R-CA) Jim Duncan (R-TN) J.

Well here is my letter to Tancredo:

I am a Republican that has voted a straight Republican ticket for years.. no longer. I am writing TOM TANCREDO in both the primary and the general election for president. You are the ONLY congressman that has the fortitude to tell the truth on immigration. God forgive George Bush.. for he certainly does not have mine.

Here is my letter to Tancredo

Dear Rep. Tancredo,

While I am serving my country in the US Air Force to ensure our nation's security, our own president is proposing legislation that would seriously endanger our national security on the homefront. Please don't let this happen.

Thank you for your service to your great nation.

Always remember, that you are fighting for your nation.

In spite of what our national leaders may or may not do, you can rest good at night knowing that your service to America is every bit as important as whoever sits in the oval office.

At least this next national election, military absentee votes will NOT be discarded as an after thought from a second-class citizen.

You are top-notch, first-rate, and have every right to be proud of who you are and what you do.

Thanks for a job well done and keep up the good work.

As for Dubya, he has surprised and astonished more than not with the announcement of his new immigration reform initiatives.

Shock and awe comes to mind.

Be safe.

Here's my letter:

Dear Rep.Tancredo,

I can't believe that President Bush proposed this amnesty plan. This is going to be a disaster for our country. Jobs that Americans won't do? I know people that would love to have hotel and meat cutting jobs!

Until today, I fully supported President Bush, but now I'm shocked and disappointed in him.

I hope there is something you can do about this before it's too late.

Sincerely,

Tom, I have just plainly given up. If you can do anything for this country, I am pledding with you to help. It seems that our voices can't count for anything. I heard you on Savage the other day, and you seem like a good man, but you sounded beaten down too.
Please, do anything you can. I will write in your name.

Time will prove the wisdom of the Bush policy.

The reality is the illegals are here, and have been for years. Many are the guests of Americans like you.

What Bush needs is political cover to nail those illegals to the wall who will not officially reveal their existence and play by the rules.

By giving them a fair chance to provide the best of their presence, the willingness to work at entry-level jobs that Americans shun, and removing the worst, which is their unregistered and illegal status, Bush is once again achieving the heroic and legendary.

Freepers will embrace this policy with time.

I'll be patient in my counter-criticism because I believe emotions and not common sense are guiding the initial reaction.

Here is a thread that is more balanced and actually has some good debate.

If they didn't reveal their existence? That makes no sense --- and why would they play by the rules when our leaders periodically come up with amnesites/legalizations that make it smarter not to play by the rules?

And just how is Bush going to nail them against the wall if they won't officially reveal their existence? What can he do ---- send out agents to do door to door searches looking for the illegals who didn't sign up with his guest worker program?

One way it does --- already there is a lot of organized criminal rings providing false and stolen documents to those who wish to buy them. There are stolen Social Security numbers, there are green cards (sold and then reported lost by their owners). Now there will be a blue card with will also be easily copied, stolen, sold -- to be purchased by whoever --- and this blue card will allow someone to cross the border as they please --- as often as they like.

Not if it has biometrics. But you are just a constant naysayer. You have no solutions. We have agreed that Mexico has to get it's own house in oreder, but you offer no solutions or have the patience it will take. You would rather just bitch and moan.

Contacted Tom Tancredo with a letter detailing the reasons why America is begging for enforcement of existing immigration and border laws. Bush refuses to enforce these laws for the sake of his own political gain. I told Mr. Tancredo that I would support his run for the Presidency if he would consider it.

Perhaps you'd like to read up on the issue. He makes a provision to allow illegals to be "on the road to legal status." Read: Keep your head down and I'll make you a citizen. Like 245i...this is nothing but a back door amnesty. He doesn't even have the guts to be honest about it..has to hide it in the fine print!

I would like to suggest that there be ways for jobs that non-citizens are now doing be put up for grabs. For instance, if it was learned that a non-citizen was doing a laundry job in SE MA, it should be in a special classified section of the newspaper. If a citizen claims it, the non-citizen should be sent home and the job should be providing wages for us.

If someone is hiring illegals, they should be fined and go to jail. If they don't immediately admit it and sign up for the process to replace those people, they should lose their jobs, get even more jail time and stiffer fines, even be open for lawsuits filed for citizens who would do the job.

We know the percentages opposed to foreigners doing work US citizens would do. We know the percentages opposed to the invasion. Face it, folks, except for a few heroes such as Representative Tancredo, everyone else is supporting the status quo...cheap labor, cheap votes, the destruction of the middle class in America.

I'm disgusted. President Bush knows how conservative Americans feel about this issue. He's circumventing the political process and supporting a form of globalism that is not helpful to the aspirations of average US citizens who want to maintain what they have worked so hard for.

George Bush is treating conservatives like the Democrats treat the Blacks. Karl Rove has decided conservatives will vote for Bush no matter what they do. We'll see in Nov. if he was right. However, I personally will not be voting for a president who can stand up to Saddam Hussein but not to Vicente Fox.

This is going to be one hot political potato.

What cannot get lost in the picture is that President Bush has already been given the "Hitler" label. The lying liberals don't give a rats behind about what happens to "humanity".

The lying liberals will react in whatever manner they see that will help themselves regain their power and seems to me that we conservatives should not play into their hand.

Now that my temper's cooled somewhat---

You know, there's something very interesting here ideologically:

a whole new kind of class warfare between one kind of Republican and another.

Those with maids and yard help, and those without. Haves and have-nots.

You don't notice Rush calling for enforcement of our immigration laws--and why not? Do you suppose Marta scrubs the twenty toilets in the twenty bathrooms in that $24M mansion in Palm Beach? Does Rush spread his own mulch?

Yesterday on Hannity I heard George Will speak approvingly of mass immigration...well...I'll bet his young trophy wife doesn't clean her own house, and poor George better never expect such a thing.

But middle-class Americans don't buy so much house that they can't maintain it without illegal labor--but the elites of our party have to have servants.

Around where I live there are two kinds of new communitites--stunningly ugly, huge, shapeless mansions. And the slums of the help these rich folks require to maintain their Alcatraz on the Lake.

And what about the hospitals stressed by uncompensated illegal emergency care?

Well, Rush has an answer for that. Free enterprise, low taxation, deregulation! But I'll bet he still depends on that emergency room to be open for celebrity overdoses. As for stressing the schools, well, we should all have vouchers.

Bah. Don't think my my temper's cooled quite enough.

Support Tom Tncredo. My email to him below:




Congressman Tancredo: Keep up the good fight. You are a lonely voice of reason fighting the uncontrolled mass immigration of illegal aliens. You must win this fight or the US will be lost. A nation that cannot control its borders will soon lose its identity. Gradual, controlled immigration that allows for assimilation is a good thing. The present situation is a dangerous invasion that will destroy us. President Bush's proposed amnesty for illegals (even if he won't call it amnesty) is a danger to America and will lead to millions more coming across our borders. Mass illegal immigration is a greater danger to this country than islamic terrorism. This plan must be stopped or the US will go the way of the Roman empire. Do you accept conributions for the effort to defeat the various plans to reward illegal aliens? If you do, I would like to send what I can. Thank you

I respect all of your views so I hope mine will be respected as well. That said, I'm prepared to be flamed for my view by someone as I've read some pretty nasty comments to those who don't agree on other threads. It's sad to see this on Free Republic to say the least.

TO THOSE WHO WON'T VOTE FOR PRESIDENT BUSH AGAIN:

A democrat will win this election. The UN will dictate our foreign policy. Maybe France will have say. Our tax cuts gone, the list will go on. But go ahead get so mad about this issue and let a democrat win instead. There are to many with this kind of logic that it scares me. Terrorists are praying to Allah that Bush loses.

I worry. I live on Long Island in NY. I was in NYC shortly after the destruction of the World Trade Center attack. My husband flew out on business early that very morning. I know of people who died and the family left behind. I have family/friends who, by the grace of God, survived that day. I have a family member who lives in D.C. That makes me recognize that now it's not voting for the lesser of two evils. At this point, it is a vote for the man will protect America the best to prevent such horrific terrorist attacks from happening again. The world is far from perfect. Who knows what has already been thwarted. If we only have two candidates to chose from that will actually win this election, I choose the one who will defend America against attack. A man who will support and give our troops all they require to fight this war. To me, our time to protest is during 2008. Right now it is too dangerous. I understand why some will feel betrayed by this policy. Though, I have to say I think many have not read the entire policy. It may be the only way to take the first step to address this issue. It’s not the end of America. How about putting energy into lobbying to make English our primary language.

It’s unbelievable to see people choose not to vote for Bush at this critical time of war to chance one of those eggheads (being kind) running in the democrat primaries.

Thanks for the contact info. A phone call has been to Tom's office.

For good measure I called my Congressman, who is working on the reelection campaign for President Bush instead of concentrating on his own reelection. I just thought I would make a point that I would vote for neither of them because of this.

Remember that Carl Rove is going to withdraw all republican money from Tom also. Make a donation and urge him to run for president in 2004, campaigning against the Bush immigration amnesty program. He would win hands down.

He and the other Republicans mentioned in this article are the only true Americans left in the Republican party.

Rewarding people who came over here illegally, ie:breaking the laws of the United States of America is amnesty. We obviously can't catch them to pardon them. /sarcasm.

I read through the main story on the link you posted, and for once the Dems have a point. This is only going to help big business secure cheap labor without being fined. Paging Walmart. This means reduced wages and job opportunities for citizens.

President Bush himself said that this legislation would take the heat off hotel maids, meat cutters, and landscapers. These are the jobs that Americans won't do? I beg your pardon, but I know citizens who would jump at those jobs.

Imo, President Bush is breaking the laws he swore to uphold. Ooops, the Constitution is a living document, and can be interpreted any ol' which way.

Here in Arizona, for the past two days I have been hearing interviews with the three Arizona traitors who put together this piece of trash legislation ... John McPain, Jeff Flake (appropriate name!) and Jim (I think it's Jim, he's not my district rep.) Kolbe. These three are proud of what they have done.

At least our other Senator, Jon Kyl and Representative J. D. Hayworth have "seen the light" and are voicing opposition to this.

It's the hot topic of local talk radio, we have varying degrees of reaction to this ... most of it against. A poll was done months ago, and over 70% of Arizonans reject any form of pandering to the illegal issue.

For us, there is a lot at stake.

Dear President Bush: I have supported you almost 100% so far. I am very disapointed in your Immigration policy..

Please assign Rep. Tom Tancredo as your Sr. advisor on this issue... He is right on target...

Respectfully,

David C. Osborne 850-933-8511

At this point, it is a vote for the man will protect America the best to prevent such horrific terrorist attacks from happening again.

I, also, will vote for someone who will do the best to prevent these attacks from happening again. That someone will not be someone who allows anyone and everyone to simply walk across our borders.

Great Idea-I might do the same by writing in Tancredo this
fall on my election ballot. Wish others would follow suit.

Great-the next step Arizonans should take is borrow a page
from California and vote to recall Gov. Napolitano this
year.
